I grew up in Georgia, where Coke actually comes from & this drink has a very nostalgic place in my childhood memories. I remember fondly all the iconic, old fashioned Coca-Cola signs that were in every grocery & drug store soda fountain back then. Coke was considered a special drink, more for grownups than for children. It was brought out on a tray as a treat, icy cold, when guests came to call.
I remember the pleasure of sitting in rocking chairs on my grandmother's wide front porch & having my very own frosty bottle of Coke with the adults. I think of delightful days of hot summer sun & the heats dizzingly refreshing antidote.

I hope you will check out the other Drawing Challenge participants on Rachel's blog Hi Happy Panda. I think that you will find that there is indeed a lot to admire about each of them.
